Metro Parks Covered in Zombie Tracks
Wednesday October 12, 2011
October is known for its goons, ghosts, goblins and the occasional thing that goes bump in the night. And let us not forget to mention zombies! Throughout pop-culture, zombies are commonly referred to as the “living dead” or “walking dead,” but the “hiking dead?” Metro Parks is hosting the first ever Zombie Hike at the Horine Reservation of the Jefferson Memorial Forest on Saturday, October 22 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m..
The public is invited to come dressed in their zombie best and hike through the “undead” Forest. Afterwards, folks can stay for a camp fire, s’mores and a showing of the film, The Night of the Living Dead.
“The Zombie Hike will be awesome!” said Tonya Swan of Jefferson Memorial Forest, “Folks get to have some fun dressing up, see our amazing forest and accomplish a little physical activity while they are at it.”
Prizes will be awarded during a costume contest. Parking for the event will be $5.00 and s’more kits will be available for $3.00.
